Where can I get a simcard to be used in new york and maryland? I will be going there shortly but would like 1 or 2 sim cards that I can use straight away to save on money.

Something similar to the millions of simcards that we can get free in the UK would be great.

Not sure if its what your looking for … Not sure if its what your looking for but...http://www.carphonewarehouse.com/commerce/servlet/gben-pd-ProductDisplay?S=130&filter_network=4TRAV&PN=PAYGOSIM&from=list



Thanks for the link.

It was really an american simcard i was looking for rather than a travellers one. Any network is fine.

That one on the carphonewarehouse will cost me a fortune calling within the US.

Thanks tho.

Can anyone else help?

Actually i think i found something on ebay 110142614103

Is this okay?

not many networks in america use sim cards, and not many of them are pay as you go, i had a similar problem when i went to canada and america last year.

Cingular, Tmobile, Verizon

Thats three I know of so look out for them.

Also, doesn't your phone need to be triband? like most 3 phones, to accept these.

They dont use simcards? What do they use instead?

If i buy that one on ebay, will it work okay? I have a Quadband phone.

your phones unlocked? if so you should be fine. There may be a few compatibility problems so you might not be able to do things like send picture messages ect

I know but he's already said that the phone is quadbanded so will work anywhere in the world. If he is putting another network sim in it it has to be unlocked regardless of weither this is a forgein sim or a brittish one

I heard from my friend that simcards cost quite a bit out there.

The ebay link i had above was for £12 with $30 credit preloaded. Surely thats a good deal? picked up two anyways for myself and the OH.
